Cy-Creek advances to state one-act play competition
Cypress Creek High School has advanced to 5A state finals in the 85th annual University Interscholastic League one-act play competition.
Cy-Creek's scenes from Aaron Sorkin's The Farnsworth Invention will be one of eight shows in 5A competition at the state meet May 9-11 at the University of Texas at Austin.
Justin Salinas, as David Sarnoff, won best actor. Jon Cozart, as Philo T. Farnsworth, and Natalie Tischler, playing both David's mother and Pem Farnsworth, were named to the Region III all-star cast.
The rest of the cast received honorable mention all-star cast.
"This is highly unusual," said Marilyn A. Miller, who co-directed the play with Alexander Garza and Marilyn Ocker.
Cy-Creek triumphed in zone, district and area contests before advancing at the April 16 regional meet at San Jacinto College in Pasadena.
Cypress Ranch High School also advanced to the regional meet with The Kentucky Cycle: Fire in the Hole, directed by Cheryl Bradford and Jane Bankston. Parker Jackson was honored as outstanding technician, Logan Hardy was named to the all-star cast, and Ross Bechtold and Jeremiah James received honorable mention.
"It's the largest theatrical event of its kind in the world, with 1,226 schools participating," said state contest director Luis Muñoz.
